I just got back from seeing Captain America: The Winter Soldier and I loved it.
Still processing the movie in my brain. But the initial reaction is still excitement.
Better than the first Captain America. Definitely the best movie I've seen all year. The best Marvel movie since The Avengers. Sorry, Thor... you're still my second-favorite Avenger, though.
Lots of action and excitement, but enough slower moments to balance it out without dragging it down. The movie really kept you on your toes the entire time. Lots of surprises.
Obligatory Stan Lee cameo: very amusing.
Marvel trademark after-credits scene: I must admit I only saw the first one. I thought about staying longer, just in case there was another scene, but I was there with a friend and I didn't wanna keep her waiting around for nothing. And so I missed the second scene. And I feel like an idiot.
(but not as idiotic as the people who started leaving right as the credits started rolling. really, people? haven't you learned by now?)
But I'm really excited about the scene that I did see. Very excited for Marvel's future.
Awesome movie. This movie really is every bit as good as people are saying it is. Go see it. Go see it twice. Take me with you! I'd like to see it again.
